Remote and secure https Xen administration on port 8000

Remote and secure https Xen administration on port 8000




  1. DocumentRoot /var/www/xend/

        CustomLog /var/log/httpd/xend-access_log combined

        ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/xend-error_log


  1. PROXY

        ProxyRequests Off

        ProxyPreserveHost On


        SetEnv force-proxy-request-1.0 1

        SetEnv proxy-nokeepalive 1

        ProxyPass /xend http://localhost:8000/xend

        ProxyPassReverse /xend http://localhost:8000/xend

        ForceType text/html


  1. SSL

        SSLEngine on

        SSLProtocol all


        SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/cert/server.crt

        SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/cert/server.key

If someone knows, how a workaround would look like, I’m really looking forward to see the solution. I played around using an additional perl or php wrapper in between, but this solution would be a dirty hack to cover fundamental errors in the xend http daemon.

      Xen is a free virtual machine monitor for IA-32, x86-64, IA-64 and PowerPC architectures. It is software that runs on a host operating system and allows one to run several guest operating systems on top of the host on the same computer hardware at the same time. Modified versions of Linux and NetBSD can be used as hosts. Several modified Unix-like systems may be employed as guest systems; on certain hardware, since Xen version 3.0, unmodified versions of Windows and other systems can also be used as guests.
